DIRECTOR OF MARKETING AT THE GRATITUDE NETWORK

Director of Marketing, The Gratitude Network

Do you have marketing and/or sales experience …and wish to use it to make a big global impact? 

The Gratitude Network, a unique non-profit that offers coaching and mentoring to social entrepreneurs globally, is adding a critical role to its team!  

 We have a small but loyal support base of 4,000+ email addresses and 650 Facebook followers.  Individual team members have substantial LinkedIn connections, but our own LinkedIn presence is nominal, as is our Twitter following.


We post regularly on Facebook and email out consistently with news and updates.  Our website likely needs an overhaul—it has gotten cluttered over the past couple of yeas.   

That being said, the biggest issue, is an overall marketing, branding strategy and articulation / execution of that to develop a global following to support our application process for our leadership development program, brand recognition, and to support our development efforts.  We’re are ready to take this to the “next level”.

We have an opening on our team of 8 for a Director of Strategic Marketing.  This person becomes a member of our overall team, will manage and direct our entire marketing strategy, branding strategy and corollary program. 

Do you have experience in organization of high impact projects? Do you have what it takes to be part of an all-star team?  If so, we want to hear from you!
